Q: What led you to play the piano?

A: My aunt was my piano teacher. I came to Judson College every year to play by memory.

A: They are crazy about it. They’re always asking me to play.

A: I’m going to be recording two CDs in the next few months. I plan to continue serving the Lord with my music until I am no longer able.


Q: What difference will your music make for you in the future?

A: I can see the Lord working and I can feel His presence when I’m playing and singing.
